For the SP500, Cycle-wise we are in the 16th week of a Primary 1 cycle (aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks) starting at the Oct 15th low.
We are looking for the trough in the SP500 near by March 11, 2015 +- 1 week. This is close by two signatures with a history of occurring at primary cycle turns. These are Jupiter trine Uranus and Saturn stationary. Since we are 16 weeks along we should be watching for a forming trough. Prices are already below the two moving averages we follow at 15 and 45 day sma. Noted further down it seems to be getting strong support here. Any break down and start looking for the trough.
The 7th and last square of the Uranus / Pluto waxing square is March 16, 2015. The two planets will be very close for the next 3 months. We saw the type of dramatic event we were expecting when the Swiss National Bank announced they would de-peg their currency, the Swiss Franc to the Euro on Jan 15th. Will there be other currencies perhaps de-pegging from the Euro or maybe the
as well. Stayed tuned. This dramatic move down in crude is also well timed with the Uranus / Pluto waxing square.
We also mentioned last week the period from Feb 18 through March 20th looks particularly disruptive. This could stretch into early April. The type of events we may witness may be disturbing. There are war aspects (either a greatly expanded current war or a new upset), possibly drastic security measures, deception, kidnappings, strife and discord, terror attacks There also maybe some type of
Hollywood sex scandal but
this may be looked at as pretty mild stuff with the other events around this
time. It may be the main stream media using such a non-event to distract the populace from the real problems going on. Subscribers will get a list of exact dates.
This does not sound very pleasant but we should add, there is the potential for some type of natural disaster. With the larger planets being aspected we can't rule out geophysical events. Look for an increase in earthquakes above 5.5 to point to something more major.
Keep in mind when reading the above, the planetary positions are creating an environment where certain events are more likely to happen. It is never 100%.
For forecasting we use New Moon charts, individual planet Cycle charts, Solar and Lunar eclipses, secondary progressions, Solar arcs (my favorite) and Declination arcs. Also there are a number of hot spots in the Zodiac which will be mentioned when they are hit.
The EU decision to implement a QE program occurred under a Mercury retrograde, a period of time where decisions, often, do not turn out as expected.
There are a number of longer term market cycles that could hit in 2015. Two we've discussed before are the 4 year cycle and the 6 year cycle. There are a number of longer term cycles as well which are covered in the market letter.
Turn on your speakers.
Geocentric Jupiter waxing trine Uranus VIDEO
The second exact trine in this series is March 3rd, 2015. This is the same day as the Mercury shadow date. The shadow date is the day Mercury returns to the position it held when it turned retrograde on January 21.
Fibonacci expansion values based on the period from the Oct 2007 high to the March 2009 low.
This weekly chart shows the Fib expansion values and the next one coming up on
March 2, 2015. Note the previous values have been at highs and lows.
SP500 - planetary mid-points
(to follow up from the last two blog posts following is a daily chart of the SP500 with the Mars through Pluto mid-points. They act as support and resistance.)
The above daily chart of the SP500 shows the mid point of the planets Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as discussed the last few weeks. The mid-point is expressed in planetary longitude and converted to price. On the chart we see the next resistance level around 2086 and the next support at 1995.
In brief, the Central Banks of the world continue to try and stir up inflation while commodities appear to be in a deflationary period. This week is a little quieter as far as Astros are considered. We do have a full moon and we have the payroll numbers on February 6th, the same day the Sun opposes Jupiter. This latter aspect has a history of occurring close to a Primary cycle turn. Watch the weeks either side of this date.
Gold put in a trough on Nov 7th. This would put us in the 13th week of it's Primary cycle 1 (nominal 18 week) during this coming week.
Volatility in precious metals continue. I'll cover the longer term cycles in Gold next week as I'd like to see price action this week. Friday was a big range day but also an inside day. Inside days point to indecision. Gold came off it's recent highs so next week could be looking at the crest of the Primary cycle or we had it on Jan 22nd.
Gold moved down last Thursday to the 61.8% retrace area on the following chart and then bounced on Friday. To continue up Gold needs to get back to and above the 78.6% retracement level.
The following daily Gold chart shows the heliocentric Venus (green) and Jupiter (blue) price lines. Gold moved sharply down when the helio Venus and Jupiter price lines crossed on Jan 28th.
This was also a 27 cd (calendar day and red vertical lines)) cycle on this chart which has marked both highs and lows. This also hit on Jan 28. The next date using these measures is Feb 25 and 26th. We'll watch price action as compared to these price lines until then.
Silver also appears to be in the 13th week of it's Primary cycle cycle 1 on
Nov 7th. looks like the Primary cycle (nominal 18 week cycle) trough. Silver had a much stronger move down on Jan 29 making a move down to the Primary cycle low a stronger possibility. Watch both Gold and Silver price action this week. I would normally be looking for the Primary cycle to be forming but Gold has been so powerful in January it could stretch into early February.
The following daily chart of Silver shows the heliocentric price lines for Venus and Jupiter. This has a more telling move down centered on the Jan 28th date we've discussed.
We are looking for dates and time periods where crude prices could make a turn. This Astrological items that rule crude are Neptune, Jupiter and Pisces. Watch planets in Pisces. Since Neptune is there and rules Pisces any aspects to Neptune maybe significant, like the Venus conjunct
Neptune this weekend. We have already mentioned the Sun
opposing Jupiter on Feb 6th. Watch price action this week. Another thing that
could effect crude pricing is Pluto as it rules hidden things and things from
We are going into more detail in the subscription letter. We mentioned above the possibility of violent events coming up in Feb and March. The letter will go into more detail and dates. War or signs and rumors of war should be positive for crude, precious metals and commodities in general.
When crude stops this fall the following chart should be useful. Note prior to crude's move down the geocentric price lines for Jupiter and Neptune have acted as support and resistance.
